Shetland District has a large area of coastline, covering this area are Twenty Three teams of trained Volunteer Coastguards, with Rescue Vehicles and Rescue Equipment for saving of life.

The Coastguard Rescue Service is a voluntary organisation managed, trained and equipped by HM Coastguard. The Service is made up of members of the public with an interest in and a concern for the safety of life at sea, able and willing to undertake public service on a volunteer basis. Although classed as volunteers they receive remuneration for actual hours worked, including training.

Close liaison with all the other emergency services is an important part of the non rescue duties as is visiting schools, local shows, and other equally satisfying public relations duties.

In an emergency, the teams are tasked by means of pagers direct from MRCC Shetland, and can be at scene of an incident anywhere within their area of responsibility within 30 minutes, often less.

Volunteers should contact Shetland MRCC initially on 01595 692976
